It means a lot to us racers that could not be there. Now does anyone have any highlights in the mod race? what happened? how the race went? heat races? seen some heavy hitters finish in the rear? Tech? Don’t make me call you T.C…lol
have church and helping my son move today, but here is a quick highlight from my score sheet. L.B set fast time 15.243 started P7, Moff was on the pole and ran P1 the entire race. Jefferson was on his bumper with Arnold as the top 3, Morris was 4th and pitted on lap 9 with a flat, while Skaggs was 5th. Skaggs broke on lap 16 not sure if it was due to contact with the 19. lap 40 the 37 of Sheilds blew up and hit the wall so under red the cars were turn off on the front stretch. Jefferson wasn’t able to fire back up and Grimm also had problems, Grimm came back out but lost the air filter and stuff a few laps later, while Harper ran in third. Good hard racing by all no crash fest, just good racing, 5 cautions spread out for 50 laps. that’s the best I got, and everyone passed tech.
Not that it matters to most, but it does to me. Last night after qualifying kevin stopped by are pit to tell us are car looked tight in qualifying, LOL I said with a right flat it should be tight, we picked up a piece of metal debri in the rr tire when we pulled in to the x of the infield. Kevin said let me have the tire,i told him I had already gone down to the tire shed and purchased another one, He said I will be back in a minute, when he returned. he handed me 125.00 dollars for the tire I had ruined. MOST TRACKS WOULD HAVE SAID SORRY FOR LUCK I was very surprised. Well I just wanted to share that with yall, Gestures like that go a long way with the racers and fans. thanks again
That is a real good car count for the times…
You can be proud to have that many racers with 2 tracks 20 mi apart.
Great to see my home track getting back on line…
I hope that I get to come watch some racing there this year…
T.C. guess you didn’t get the memo… Kevin meant for you to give me that 125.00…trust me.
In reality, that was a sport move on Kevin’s part… that track has come a long long way since the take-over… you can’t even see the ole Desoto anywhere… new everything… well maintained, clean as hell, safe stands…just what you’d expect in a “Real Race Track”… thanks FTS Management / Staff… OSF
Not to the same degree as buying me a tire, but… I had my car up on stands with three guys under it and Kevin rolled up in his cart and asked if we were gonna be ok. (I had spun in practice and needed a push start to get going since my old weak a** starter couldn’t crank my hot motor). I told him
we were fine and just swapping out the starter since we had time. He actually apologized to me for what little remains of that nasty bump in between 3 and 4 figuring that’s what caused me to spin! I told him that we were just real loose and I pushed it too hard on exit. He said as soon as they are able, they are going to repave that section and remove the bump entirely. This guy really cares about the racers and doing everything he can to have the best racetrack possible.
